Warm Winter and allergy Spring

Spring is coming on rapidly after a winter with much higher temperatures than usual. If fact, it has been the fourth warmest winter on record in North America. Some of the effects around here include an increase in mosquitoes and other flying insect pests, a higher that normal production of molds and fungi over the next couples of months, if you have allergies take note, and the plants have started blooming weeks and months ahead of schedule.
The Gulf of Mexico water temperature is up from where it usually is at this time and that doesn’t bode well for the 2012 hurricane season.
